Living V8 juice!

v8 006

Don’t buy dead juice in a can that has been processed and cooked when you can make your own living version! You must buy a juicer if you don’t have one already!  This is a tomato free version, but you can add tomatoes if you would like! One other veggie I would add if you have it on hand would be cilantro. Cilantro is an excellent detoxing food especially heavy metals in the body. If you want to make this the ultimate healing  juice add a pinch of tumeric powder to your juice!  Living juice has many more benefits than dead juice including large array of live enzymes, higher antioxidants, and powerful cleansing and detoxifying effect on the body.  I dilute my juice with water with about 2/3 juice and 1/3  water so I can extend it out a bit.

What I ate Wednesday

 

photo (5)

For breakfast today I didn’t eat food but just had some fresh juice from my juicer. Sometimes I just feel better if I skip breakfast and do an early lunch. It gives my body a sort of mini detox considering it has been without food since dinner yesterday. Just a large cup( or 3) of juice and I’m good till lunch. I even have a better workout on an empty stomach.  The secret to making juice more affordable is to dilute it with water and add a little bit of stevia sweetener to extend it out. Then you can drink several cups throughout the day instead of just 1 concentrated cup in the morning. This is my juice today:

Lime sunshine

5 carrots

1 gala apple

1 lime

1/2 orange

2-3 ” piece of fresh ginger

handful of cilantro

2 stalks of celery

1/2 cucumber

Enjoy!  It tastes even better in a fancy cup 🙂
